the music got on my nerves but overall i liked the change of style halfway.
i'm curious about the swastika at the beginning though.

They have improved on a graphic side.
The scene in the latter half is tolerable.
however, music ain't good.
however, good overall.

mostly ugly and slow parts and shitty poetry. but there some really great parts scattered around which deserve their own thumb ups.

Pretty slow and boring and dull music. Some nice parts as well.

GargaJ: I can't run the demo, but my guess is they're intended as Buddhist good luck symbols. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika
aye the swastika is sometimes used for protection from evil spirits or something too in witchcraft (saw it on x-files :) ). it doesn't look like it was meant in a sinister way here, but who knows? anyhow, the intro had some good bits and bad bits, so...
after turning off the noise it is ok...

Quality prod, some nice effects and lots of scenes. but the music ruins it a bit.

Ok for me.

well it's different :)
plenty of scenes for 50k, some good some not so good.. the music really does let it down.
Some quite nice moments, especially after the middle. Still, I got some slow downs at few parts and music is weird even if I don't care much. Small thumb up.

The music is so bad! And have you ever heard of textures? Tekusuturesu... or something. Other than that is great. Try to make more Jap. sceners. Or groupies.

It started strange and then it just got better and better until it rocked. <3

Gargaj et al.: Seeing every Hakenkreuz-swastika as a nazi symbol is typical for Europeans, but since that prod comes from .jp the cultural background shouldn't be forgotten. The swastika has its role in many (south-)east Asian countries and differs quite a lot from the European interpretation of that symbol. Furthermore greeting people and groups from quite different countries is quite the opposite of the usual fascistic ideologies.

The prod itself makes me a bit sad because it shows me once again that my computer is a bit outdated. It ran quite slow and the cube scene was pretty ugly (like 8 bit rendering). The screenshot looks so much better... :/
MadenMann: turning your statemant around - considering the demoscene is largely an European phenomenon, i dont think anyone should be surprised :)
Also I dont see it's above use as a symbol of anything exact - I'm just curious about what it's supposed to represent in this very intro.

but let's not forget that the .jp were actually part of the Axis ;)

anyway, ok intro, the scene with the GI was nice tho, too bad the music then starts to become really annoying... thumb up anyway

The swastika is called a symbol in the Buddhism of Japan.
However, I do not understand whether it is a true meaning in this demo.
It seems that it is TERA=Temple though it is a title of this demo.
I will ask kioku for details...

I didn't actually reach satori while watching it, but it's sort of cute, and has some good ideas, like the collision in the piston scene.

sysK again released sth good to see.
clear graphs and those animed fonts made me comfortable.

bad bad music with very good looking visuals

Some ups and downs, but a good overall.

some framerate issues on my slower-than-should-be PC, but still a very very exciting demo.
Fantastic visuals especially star explosions and text-morphed-credits.
Music is just ok, but takes a turn for the worse when synth lead comes in (combined with the cubes here, it sucks a bit).
But still, really exciting to see.
Kool-Demo-shock! XD

i think there's a timer problem on modern computers
some nice scenes and some messy ones. feels unpolished.
